The Habitiual Drinker in San Francisco

“From the time the habitual drinker in San Francisco takes his morning gin-cocktail to stimulate an appetite for breakfast, he supplies himself at intervals throughout the day with an indefinite number of racy little spirituous compounds that have the effect of keeping him always more or less primed.”

– Mountains and Molehills by Frank Marryat, 1855.
